Beaches are one of the most important tourist attraction in Kerala. Though Kovalam is the most popular beach in Kerala, there are many other beaches which are almost as good. The long coastline lined with the swaying coconut palm trees and dotted with an occasional fishing hamlet is fast developing into one of the world's best string of beaches. Though infrastructure is yet to come up in many of the beaches, the advantages in those beaches are many, the most important being, less crowded.
Bekal: Spectacular beach destination
Everything about Bekal is spellbinding. The 300 year old Bekal Fort exuding an irresistible old world charm. Enchanting landscapes of beaches, backwaters and hill stations. Mesmerising art forms. Magical traditions... This quiet little seaside village in the northernmost district of Kerala has every ingredient that would go into the creation of an international standard beach destination.
Bekal enjoys the advantages of Kerala : Making Bekal even more exclusive is that it is backed by all the intrinsic advantages of Kerala - God's Own Country. Kerala is the breathtakingly beautiful land at the southwestern tip of India that enjoys unique geographic features, a pleasant climate and a rich cultural heritage. Besides, Kerala is also well connected to the rest of the world - Three international airports, good railway network (now with the Konkan railway line, Bombay will be just 15 hours from Bekal) and modern communication facilities.
